I recently did a clean install of Fedora 11 (from Fedora 10). In Fedora 9 and 10 I used a remote font server so that I could launch HP OpenView over a VPN tunnel. The procedure would go something like this:
*connect to VPN
*xset +fp tcp/<hp_ux_server>:7000
*ssh -X user@hp_ux_server
OpenView requires the fonts that are installed on the HP-UX server, hence the need for the xset command.
Now since the installation of Fedora 11, I cannot get the xset command to work.
xset fp+ tcp/<hp_ux_server>:7000
xset: bad font path element (#23), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax
I have turned off the firewall to make sure it wasn't blocking the request. But to no avail. I have also had two other people with Fedora 11 machines try this... they get the same error.
Were there major changes in the X server from Fedora 10 to 11+? Does anyone know how to get around this problem...whether it be to get xset working or by doing it another way?
I am willing to provide any feedback to assist. Thank you in advance!
